Welcome to the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication at Daffodil International University. Innovations in information and communication technologies with traditional mass media are changing the way we live, work, play, and learn. Since its inception at this university in 2007, The Department of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) has been at the forefront of efforts to explore these social, cultural, rhetorical, and organizational processes as we are preparing our students to understand and be able to study and manage the media and communication revolution in society, education, politics, management, marketing, government and nongovernmental institutions.
Housed in its own building at Sobhanbag, Dhanmondi at the centre of Dhaka City, the Department boasts state-of-the-art computing, online publishing, and multimedia classroom facilities.
Our regular BSS programs with 12 semesters and a regular One-year MSS program of three semesters combine communication theory and research methods along with new technologies including desktop publication, digital radio and television journalism, policy implications, and practical applications. Graduates will go on to positions of leadership and responsibility in media corporations, new business ventures, public relations department, government and non-profit organizations, as well as academia and research.
Students with diverse educational and cultural backgrounds from across the country come together to complete our BSS and MSS programs that emphasize participation in seminars and symposia, internships, field research in organizations, special workshops, group research projects, e-learning, and independent study.
They work with modern TV cameras, editing panels, and digital broadcast equipment and support staff to go out and make their own news programmes. The academic degrees are flexible enough to allow students a wide degree of latitude in designing their programmes of study.
Our top-ranked faculty members come from a wide range of academic disciplines and include distinguished scholars and researchers from different public universities, editors of leading newspapers, officers in prestigious national and international professional associations, and highly respected consultants to government and private industry. Faculty members work closely with students, often on exciting joint research projects.
